Blog: The Nature of Being Organized
The Two Minute Rule--It Will Change Your Future

Thought for the week: "If you can do it in under two minutes, do it now." I love "The Two Minute Rule".
So many people I speak to don't want to even think about organizing because they imagine hours of their free time spent in a crowded cluttered space toiling away. They're right, who would want that?
Clutter usually happens when you're in a rush, don't have a proper, easily accessible home for the item and put the item down where it's convenient. Now we've all done this. This is not about judgment, but it is about making a choice to work for yourself, not against yourself. You truly don't create the clutter on purpose, but you do create it, so you can uncreate it, especially if you have two minutes!
Ralph Marston has some wonderful wisdom that I want to share with you this week about being conscious of our actions. When you engage in an action unconsciously clutter builds. When you are conscious or aware you have the power of choice and come closer to creating the organized space you want.
Future consequences
One action, taken now, can have powerful consequences far into the future. That fact can be a blessing or a curse, depending of course on what the action is.
Time will magnify whatever you do. So even in the smallest matters, do what is right.
The direction and purpose of each effort are much more important than the size of the effort. For over time, all your efforts will add together to exert great influence on your life and your world.
Your future consequences are being born right now. This is a moment of great opportunity.
Point all your actions, large and small, important and seemingly insignificant, in the direction you wish to see your life move. Time will combine all those actions into an increasingly powerful set of results, and now is when you can choose those results.
With your efforts, choose to put time on your side. Make the future your friend by making the most of right now.
Ralph Marston
Each step, each decision, each action counts for creating your organized space, start from where you are right now and choose your future. It will only take two minutes.
Love To You,
